If you are in the process of making healthy changes, share your endeavors with those around you! Whether your organization is your family, church, community group or workplace, healthy habits can be shared and encouraged among friends, family members, neighbors and co-workers. Group involvement enhances participants' success by creating camaraderie for the pursuit of common goals. Incorporate wellness activities to stimulate a change in the organization's culture. Not all suggestions are feasible for every organization, but they are worth trying.

1.     Form a walking group. Incorporate walk breaks into lunch hours at a worksite or organize a post-dinner family walk.

2.     Initiate a weight-loss challenge. The challenge can create healthy competition for a healthy cause. If participants pay an entry fee, the money collected may be used as prize money for the top "losers," the people who lose the most weight.

3.     Coordinate a healthy recipe potluck. Many work sites have meetings that include food, and many churches hold covered-dish socials. Try adding a rule to encourage more nutritious food selections. Establish entry criteria such as the inclusion of two vegetables or fewer than 20g of fat to ensure entries meet healthful standards.

And all training programs will allow you to accumulate hours toward your Yoga Certification if you are ready to take that step. Or, if you are just interested in having the time of your life with us in Bali, join us for a Retreat! You will come up a new person and better for the experience in every way, I can guarantee that. Next week, after the winner is announced, if the winner is unable to travel with us, this prize is transferable, so it can be gifted to someone you love or another member of our community, that way it can be put to good use. Once notified as a winner, you should register asap and contact us if you have any questions: or 347-470-YOGA.

How do you win??

It's very simple. The only rule if you must have read Journey to Joyful or practiced along with one of my Yoga DVDs that are available on Amazon.. So this means you've either bought it, won it, or participated in the 30 Day Yoga Challenge program! You simply go onto and write a review. Stating what you thought about it, what you liked best and how it impacted your life in some way. If you haven't read Journey to Joyful, you can also qualify by posting a review about one of the 5 DVDs I have on amazon as well.
